Jim Lucio is a Generation X writer, born in Salinas, California, the hometown of John Steinbeck.  His life has been steeped in creativity and the work he has done privately and publicly deeply reflects his interest in the arts and creative expression.

Lucio has previously written for Baltimore OutLoud and had a byline as an art columnist under the name Defekto, a name he also used for his much admired Polaroid photography which gained him a strong local following and media attention.

Having nurtured and collaborated with 100s of artists as an event promoter, curator and Creative Director, Lucio has transformed not only his own life over the years, but strongly advocates positive change in others and in his new book, Toxic Rainbows, he teaches them how to do it.

Lucio also studied as a life coach with the International Coaching Federation.
